Though the San Antonio Spurs lost Thursday in Game 3 against the Memphis Grizzlies, there were two unique play calls San Antonio made to get two quality looks for Kawhi Leonard (18 points) and Patty Mills (11 points). The first play that will be analyzed was a high-low possession the Spurs used to get Leonard an alley-oop layup in the first quarter, and then a give-and-go possession the Spurs used to get Mills an open 3-point look in the third quarter. Motion Strong: 4-3 High-Low This play was diagrammed out of the Spurs’ use of Motion Strong, which is one of their ways to get Leonard in the low block through the use of ball and player movement with different actions
Welterweight Bout: Andre Berto (31-4) vs. Shawn Porter (26-2-1) Luke Irwin: Rare that a premium cable card doesn’t have a title (even an ABC trinket) headlining it, but that’s refreshing. Berto was a laughable opponent for Mayweather, and the last boxer he beat in his prime

Below is the leaked schedule, per numerous media outlets now. My first thoughts is this is a nightmare schedule early. To start on the road on Monday Night Football, then turn around and have to play the Patriots at home on a short week (when they played Thursday night and will have a lot more time to prepare) – then you have to go on the road twice more before the bye, including once to London

It’s now starting to look like umpire C.B. Bucknor has it out for the Nationals, because it’s hard to imagine that he’s this bad of an official. After blowing a strike-3 call behind home plate on Tuesday, Bucknor went back to sucking less than 24 hours later, and made another ridiculous call that went against the Nats
Remember that painting of Anthony Rizzo and Kris Bryant that teammate Matt Szczur did for charity? Well, the piece of art that immortalized the Chicago Cubs ending their 108-year World Series drought sold Wednesday…fetching $35,000 for charity To put everything into perspective…that’s $35,000 more than you have ever thought about spending on a painting, much less one done by a backup outfielder.
